I've spotted the '41 on Craigslist before. Hard to tell from the photos, but it appears to actually be a 1940 110 sedan. This is the same model as my first Packard which I purchased in 1980. Have had many Packards since.

Hi John. Agree that the car needs some work, but look at the body. It looks even nicer than Neil Donovan's '53 Clipper and that one was one of the best original unrestored cars I can recall encountering.

I also noticed the seat covers, but I think that the original seat fabric might still be intact. Look at the driver's door panel and arm rest. I am not seeing any wear. The paint looks original. I have a feeling that this one could be a really outstanding survivor car, but of course, the only way to know is to see the car in person.

Wanted to give this one a separate listing because it is so nice. Just posted last week. Look how straight and rust free the body is. Inside looks very well preserved for an original car, note ignition switch decal still in place on the dash. Think this one would clean up really well. Ad says it has been in storage for over 30 years. Located in East Hartford, CT:

New Posting on FB: 1949 (22nd series) short wheelbase Club Sedan. Not sure of exact model. Engine missing. Looks like it could be a good basis for a rod project if you are so inclined. Located in Syracuse, NY area:

This one has been on FB for a while, but just noticed it today. 1949 Super 8 (22nd Series) 7 passenger sedan, Model No. 2277. Very original car and looks pretty decent. Ad states only 53K original miles. Rare bathtub model. Car located in Ohio:

Few more new ones:

1954 Cavalier in New Hampshire. Ad lists it incorrectly as a 1952. Decent car, but needs quite a bit of work. See some rust in the floors.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/6011775802220631/?hoisted=false&ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post

1940 110 Sedan in Akron, OH. Like my first Packard, but considerably nicer. Mine was a bondoed over rust bucket. Pretty nice original interior, but probably way overpriced:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1211067906432659/?hoisted=false&ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post

1937 115C sedan in Alabama. Nicely restored, but do not like the leather interior and is way overpriced for this model:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1303228646889770/?hoisted=false&ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post

Exceptionally nice 1953 Cavalier in Omaha, NE. Attractive colors, just listed today;

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/505379778402927/?hoisted=false&ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post

Totally restored 1948 Custom 8 Convertible Victoria also in Omaha. Just listed and is stunning. But I do not like wire wheels on these cars. Not correct for the period.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/693557385763096/?hoisted=false&ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post

Streetrodded 1939 120 in TX. I say yuck, but maybe someone else likes it. At least it does not appear that they altered the body, which appears to be really solid:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1187003208907494/?hoisted=false&ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post

Nicely restored 1956 Patrician in CA. Looks sharp, but not sure color is correct. Price seems reasonable if car is as nice as in the photos:

Here is something else wrong with it. I think it is way overpriced. It has been for sale in Hemmings for months.

I see an AACA Senior badge on the car. This confirms my longtime suspicion that the judging at AACA national meets is somewhat lacking. They will give an award to a car as long as it is shiny enough, but that doesn't necessarily mean it is 100% authentic. Which it should be for that level of an award.

Here are pictures of the front seat and door panels. Door panels don't look correct to me; can anyone comment?

There is a Packard of the same model on Hemmings right now. Asking price is 135K, but it is an award winning restoration and appears considerably nicer.

I'm looking at this 1930 Packard 733 Convertible Coupe and would like opinions as to its fair market value. It is described as an older (about 15 years) restoration in excellent mechanical condition. Please see attached photos. Will appreciate any guidance.
